First time the Mets opened a season against defending World champs. Seaver and Tug shutout the Pirates at Shea.

This was the delayed season opener, delayed by the brief players' strike. It was also the first game after the sudden death of Manager Gil Hodges, just a week or two earlier. The team was still in shock.

Just found out that a partial video of this game exists. Regardless of completion, I would love to see the Mets Classics guys air this one. Wow!

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
